A Roman man in Caesarea named Cornelius made prayers to God and gave to the poor. He was spoken to by an angel in a dream to send forth his servants to Joppa and return with a man named Peter. Peter told Cornelius, the servants and many others that came that day into the household the good news of the messiah.

Acts 10:37-43
That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

It is Cornelius' life of good deeds and faith in God which led him to be granted the gift of grace hearing the news of the New Covenant with man from Peter: That is remission of sin now through Jesus Christ. The Italians then received the Holy Ghost and were saved to the surprise of Peter and his Jewish companions as Peter notes earlier Jews were not even suppose to eat with non-Jews, but receiving grace of Christ the gentile believers were suddenly on the same platform as the Jewish believers. Radical culture shock, but one that is foretold in Hewbrew scripture and by Jesus.
